I arrived in Tokyo, Japan and wanted the full "Japan Experience" so I figured a capsule hotel would be perfect. While I don't have another similar hotel to compare it to, I will give it a 4 out of 5 due to the price being a bit steeper than I would expect. Other than that, I found the experience staying...

Its not your average backpacker's hostel, but I embraced the experience for two nights and had a lot of fun here. The sauna and bathroom experience was great, the place is super clean, and the staff really nice and accomodating.

This place is worth wisiting for 2 resons: they accept women (not common in this kind of hotels) and the good price ( 2800 yen per night- approx 23 usd). Staing there is unforgetable experience of capsule hotel. Also staff is very helpful and speak some English ;-)

One of the few capsule hotels accepting women and the only one I could find on a short notice! My capsule was very clean, and the toilets were ok as well. The receptionist was very nice, spoke english and recommended the best shushi place I have ever been to. Overall, great experience, however woudnt stay for a long time -... More

So good that the capsule inn accepted female guess because mainly capsule hotels didn't accept female guesses. Location was easy to find, just a few blocks from Kinshicho station. Public hot bath was so so nice , the capsule hotel provided complete toilettries (soap, shampoo, tooth brushes, hairdyer) Only around three people were staying in my floor at the time... More

Best thing is that the wifi was really fast and staff was nice, though not all of them spoke much english. We were travelling as a couple and only place we could hang together was the reception. Thus I assume that capsule inns work better for same-sex groups. Warning for light sleepers: capsules don't really insulate any sound and there... More

I am in my 50s and stayed here with my daughter for four nights. The Inn is an easy five minutes walk from both the the Subway and JR rail. We had JR passes so used JR as much as possible. Tokyo station is 10 minutes away and all areas of the huge metropolis are accessible. As the trains stop... More

First time in capsule accommodation. Definitely an experience travellers should try in Tokyo! The public bath and sauna were fantastic. WiFi in rooms. Friendly staff. Met some great people here. Good location - right near station, though a little difficult to find for the first time - look for the burger king. Biggest drawback was that the place stank like... More

Nice location with easy access to public transport (JR-station, subway), supermarkets, ATM, etc. Capsule itself was clean and definitely worth a try but WiFi worked only in "common room". Nice and helpful staff, female Onsen (japanes bathroom) was very good but female bathroom in 6th floor was poor. Only one (of two) toilette was working and one sink was broken.... More

Stayed here for a few nights while travelling in Tokyo. The location is good, being not too far from Kinshichou station, which if you're using a JR rail pass you can get anywhere in the city from. The hostel itself was a bit grim though - really just quite run down and neglected.For the price you're paying it's not too... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Japanese Unique Style Hotel.A Capsule hotel is a unique style of accommodation in Japan, inspired by the pursuit of efficiency of space and functional comfort, originating from the adaptive, creative spirit of the Japanese mind. A typical Capsule Hotel is composed of two major sections; a public lounge space including bathing, and the other is a private space where the sleeping rooms (capsules) are arranged. The actual sleeping room is a capsule unit made of reinforced plastic and designed in the image of a jet airplane's cockpit. In the capsule unit, all the required amenities are provided; TV, radio, alarm clock, adjustable lighting... almost everything is provided! Every device is within your reach and you can control everything in a sleeping position. For the numerous business people working hard until after midnight and who miss their train, and for all the people coming to Tokyo on a short business trip, or holiday; young and old, men and women, a wide range of people stay at Capsule hotels in Tokyo. Everybody that travels to Japan should experience this unique accommodation, at least once! One of the most unique accommodations in the world! ... more   less
